Rustic Snowflake for Freshly Made Sketches

It has been awhile since I participated in a sketch challenge. I always enjoy them because they push me out of my comfort zone.

Last week I was playing around with embossing powders and created this rustic snowflake. It has been on my desk waiting for me to do something creative.

Then this Freshly Made Sketches #364 created by Kim came along and rescued my snowflake.

Here is the sketch:

 

Here is my card:

 

I heat embossed this snowflake with gold, silver and copper. I loved the way it came out so rustic and sort of “country.”

I do have a few more Snowflake Showcase cards to share this week… remember these products will disappear November 30.

I also have a few more Holiday Inspiration Newsletters to share. Make sure you sign up for my newsletter to receive free holiday tutorials.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Snow is Glistening Cards #simplestamping

Thanksgiving Eve and we are gearing up for the big day. Thank goodness for #simplestamping. I have two more snowflake cards to share today. I am in love with this Snowflake Showcase Bundle. If you like it as much as I do then you need to order before the end of November.

Purple can be a Christmas color.

This card is created with a Stampin’ Up! note card. These cut & scored note cards are a huge time saver.

I stamped this card using Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. A few dots of Powder Pink added interest on the background. I layered the punched sentiment with silver glimmer paper and added silver thread for dimension. Lots of bling adds the finishing touch.

I almost didn’t share this card because unfortunately the Designer Series Paper is sold out. But it is so pretty, and I had to share.

We have several new colors this year and Merry Merlot is one of the new Neutral colors. It goes with everything! Have you tried it yet?

#Simple stamping is a great solution for you if you have procrastinated on your holiday cards.

Happy Thanksgiving!

#simplestamping Snowflake Style

Welcome to another Snowflake day. Last week 6000+ Stamping Up!® Demonstrators gathered in Orlando for one big party – OnStage.  OnStage is where demonstrators meet up with fellow stampers, learn new techniques, gain business information and have lots of fun.

Part of the focus at OnStage was reaching out to beginning stampers. Do you remember when you were a beginner? How about the first time you put ink to paper and a beautiful image appeared? It is almost magical.

Here is my magical beginner card for today. It is simple, yet  beautiful.

Several things make this card simple.

  • The Silver Foil edged card base is lovely. No layering needed. It even has a matching silver edged envelope.
  • Using the Stamparatus to stamp the Snowflake Tree was a breeze. Because the Stamparatus has two plates I could stamp the tree and then stamp the tree trunk. Flip, stamp, flip, stamp, done.
  • Stamp the Joy sentiment and punch with a circle punch. Add to card front with dimenstionals.
  • Stamp inside sentiment using the Stamparatus.
  • Add a few rhinestones as Christmas decorations.
  • #simplestamping completed in about 5 minutes.

A reminder: The Snowflake Showcase stamps and Thinlits will disappear November 30. You will want to order them today, so you can make beautiful Christmas cards.

Stop back tomorrow for more Snowflake inspiration.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Dashing Deer for Christmas

Hello stampers. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. I have been busy getting ready to attend OnStage. This is the 30th Anniversary of Stampin’ Up!® and the OnStage event should be amazing! I can’t wait to see all the new products and chat with all my stamping friends from all around the world.

Today I have an easy Christmas card to share with you. Dashing Deer stamps and dies are great for impressive cards that will wow your friends.

Elegant Dashing Deer

Tip: To get a smooth “deer” use a new cutting plate that does not have scratches on it. I also use a piece of copy paper over the copper foil to keep it from getting scratches or dents. If you get the little dots on your deer, turn it over and rub them out with a bone folder. Unfortunately, this Designer Series Paper (Joyous Noel) has sold out for the year. This paper must have been very popular!

I will be posting pictures of OnStage this week. Check in daily and join in on all the fun.

I am also sending Holiday Inspiration newsletters during November and December. Sign up for my newsletter to have Holiday Inspiration sent directly to your inbox. (upper right hand side of the home page)

Signs of Santa Paper Sampler

When I saw this adorable Signs of Santa stamp set and Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper, I knew I had to make a paper sampler. The whimsical little Santa crew makes me smile every time I look at them.

Isn’t she a cutie??

I chose to make my sampler a little bit smaller than usual because the characters are short and roly poly.

To create this sampler you will die cut the characters and an assortment of scalloped squares and designer series paper. Play around with your placement and design until you are happy with the way it looks. Add some embellishments to give the elements some dimension and your sampler is finished.

The sparkly Merry is die cut using the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper. This assortment of glimmer paper has the prettiest colors! 

I love sparkle.

A 9×9 frame worked just right for this sampler. I can’t wait to display it during the holidays.

ONLY AVAILABLE NOV. 1 – 30 OR WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!  These limited release Snowflake Showcase products are selling like hot cakes.  They will be exclusively available Nov. 1 – 30.  See the Snowflake Showcase products, samples and learn more here.

All customers who order any of the Snowflake Showcase products will receive a bundle of free Snowflake Showcase tutorials.

Snowflake Sentiments Do Over

Happy Wednesday stampers. Today I am sharing a Snowflake Sentiments Christmas card “do over” with a new color and new ribbon. I created this card last year using Pool Party card stock and Pool Party ribbon. This year I switched to Coastal Cabana and added silver edged ribbon and used a different punch. Nice fresh redo. Snowflakes are so elegant and happy at the same time, especially in my favorite color!

 

Do you ever go back and remake card in different colors or different Designer Series Paper? I do it all the time. Once I have figured out the layout and paper measurements I figure it makes sense to use the same card in a different way.
